Product Overview Your Studio's Missing Link for Analogue Excellence
The Seraph 8 has an immaculate analogue audio circuit built around 8 top of the range AD/DA converters, the Seraph 8 brings out what has been absent for so long: Those tiny details of analogue signals following their conversion to the digital realm, those little nuances of extra sonic quality and openness in sound that your DAW may have been lacking when playing back with other sound cards.

Now, finally, the Seraph 8 is here to bridge that gap between analogue sound expectation, and what is possible in the digital reality - the full 24bit/192kHz support is just one of the reasons that makes this happen.

Analogue mixing in the digital domain: The Beast
As part of the Seraph series, the Seraph 8 comes with the new 'Beast' DSP, making the purchase of an additional mixer redundant. Even an additional patchbay is superfluous.
Regarding the hardware of the Seraph 8+, nothing less works than a full 48-2 channel mixer with 1 stereo and 3 further mono aux paths. The aux sums are entirely pre/post switchable and are therefore to mainly be used as headphone mix out or effects feed. What's more, all 48 channels have an extensive filter section with one low shelf EQ, two peak EQ's and one high shelf EQ.

Flexible and Expandable: The TDM SyncBus
Using the TDM SyncBus you can upgrade the SERAPH 8 with up to 3 more of its kind or with any other SyncBus-compatible MARIAN sound systems. E.g. with an 8 channel AES/EBU like the SERAPH D4. The SyncBus enables all connected systems to share audio clock and start/stop information. This unique solution thus ensures reliable recording of all the signals of all the sound systems involved. More than that: Thanks to an intelligent bus management, TDM SyncBus compatible systems allow the transfer and exchange of up to 8 audio signals. The signals shared will appear as input signal in each mixer of each card and are handled like every "normal" input signal.

Fast and Reliable: Multi-Client Driver Suite
Each SERAPH system provides software support for Windows™ 7/8/10, Windows™ Server 2008/2008.R2/2012. The continuously enhanced driver software includes true multi-client support for ASIO 2.2 and multi-channel WDM Audio / WASAPI with lowest latencies in all software environments. In contrast to competing products, the driver allows multiple audio applications to access the sound system simultaneously via the same or different driver interfaces.

Well-structured driver menus and dialogs, combined with an easy-to-read and practical manual, make this system extremely easy to set up and to customize for the specific needs of your studio.

Powerful and Future-proof: A perfect choice
The SERAPH 8 is available in two versions. For plain recording purposes the SERAPH 8 with its 8 analogue connectors will serve perfectly in mainly all recording situations. The SERAPH 8 MWX provides an additional daughter board featuring 2 MIDI in- and outputs as well as a wordclock synchronization in- and output. /* The wordclock ports are ideal for advanced clock setups. That means, you can also synchronize */ all external equipment featuring a wordclock input simply by using the SERAPH 8 MWX as clock master. A helpful tool to manage clock signals is the included software clock status panel monitoring sample rates, lock status and clock errors of all digital input signals.
